The Dirty on I Love You More Than Carrots

Over the last several weeks I've noticed a few new faces around this ol' blog. Not only did I want to say a quick "hello!" to all of my new followers, but if you've recently started reading, there's a bit you might be unclear about. So? Here's a dirty little recap of what we're all about around here at I Love You More Than Carrots. A refresher, if you will, and a sort of "dictionary" of the terms and phrases I've both coined and have become quite accustomed to using over the last couple of years: 

The M's: We're the main players here at ILYMTC. It's the name I chose to refer to our little family as. Why? Well, our last name begins with "M." Genius, I know

The Husband: My hilarious other half. Responsible for approximately 60% of the ridiculousness that is I Love You More Than Carrots. He likes to think he's responsible for more than that and well, I let him believe that he is. 

Sheepie: Our almost three-year-old Olde English Sheepdog. "Sheepie" is not his real name. It's Sullivan. "Sheepie" is what a few of my awesome Loyals started calling him way back when and it stuck. 

Loyals: All of you awesome and incredible readers out there. I would kiss you all on the mouth if I could!

Baby C: The Boss of me and the star of Wee One Wednesday. Let's be honest, he's probably the main reason you're even reading this blog.

Hometown, NJ: Where I grew up. Also home to these fabulous  hot messes ladies. 

The Screamies and The Sickies: Both are rather self-explanatory. And doesn't everything sound better with an -ies tacked onto the end? Both want to make me drink heavily. Or gouge my eyes out with The Nosefrida. Here's a video of the The Screamies and a post I wrote back in 2010 about The Sickies and why I'm not a Certified Boogie-Sucker. 

No Judgies: As in, "don't pass judgment." Bitches.

Mom-etition: The kind of shiz that goes down at places like Gym.boree.

And last but not least, something I'm ultimately famous for:

Losing one's shit: An often occurrence around these parts, this typically happens when one or all of the following happens:
          a. There's no more wine.
          b. Somebody forgets Sheepie in NJ. 
          c. Someone copies me. 
          d. There's no more chocolate.
          e. All the JCrew's on the eastern seaboard go out of business. 

Hopefully you're all caught up to speed now and can thoroughly enjoy the shit-losing and snark that happens quite often here at ILYMTC! 

Happy Wednesday, Loyals! Forgive me for not posting the usual "Wee One Wednesday?" No worries, I'll be sure to throw some additional Cuteness up on the ol' blog sometime later this week.

  2. Hilarity! You are the perect mix of sass & class! Love ya!

  3. Dang, I was hoping you were going to tell us what ILYMTC means - where the name came from. So embarrassed you're on of my fav bloggie friends and I don't know the answer. :)

  4. I'm with Elizabeth...I'd like to hear the story behind the blog's name! And you are one of the blogs I've been following the longest too! Love from a fellow Jersey girl!

  5. HAHA Love all your "wordies"!!!!

  6. Love this post! You literally had me laugh out loud. Thanks for that. Enjoy your day.

  7. Love this post! Cracked me up!!!

  8. Oh my goodness I love this. The worst part is I knew what they all meant. Maybe because I make up words and names for everything too. Love this post.

  9. Love this post ash!! I think you are such a gifted writer and I love your lingo! It's almost like when we were in nursing school and trying to make sense of that new lingo- love it!!

  10. Yeah, so lump me in with the others who thought this was going to include where your name came from - I've been with you for YEARS and never known :)

  11. Alternate title: Why People Love Reading This Blog!

  12. love it. I actually used the term "losing her shit" in real life the other day. Thanks for expanding my vocabulary.

  13. hehe Newish follower here! Loved the definitions. And yeah, I was hoping to hear how the name came about too. :)

  14. The only question I have that you didn't answer- WTF made you choose "I love you more than carrots" as the blog title?! :)

  15. Omg, your blog eats my comments! Ok, fine... I won't blame your blog. I know, 99% chance I'm the one who is retarded & can't leave a comment from my phone. I know moderation is on so if this is a duplicate, my apologies.

    Mostly, I said I want to know the name story too and about AP? Are those your first & middle names or just first? Do people call you AP or just Ashley? Hey, never said I wasn't nosey. ;o)

    I'm glad to say thanks to you I 'lose my shit' often and love it. :)

  16. this and your blog! You are too funny.

  17. you kill me ;) you need a copyright button!

  18. LOVE your blog and your little bloggy family. I wish we could take our little ones to the mall for some lunch (with wine) and J. Crew shopping!

  19. Loving this post, hilarious! My favorite of your terms, which I actually caught myself saying yesterday "losing ones shit" ha!

  20. Haha! Love this! It made me giggle at the end of a long day. Have a wonderful weekend! xx
